The University of Konstanz is a modern research-oriented university located in one of Germany's most attractive regions. Recognised as one of the top eleven universities in the country, our university ranks internationality as a top priority. The fact that more than 40 % of our students either study abroad at one of the 300 international partner universities or opt for an internship abroad is proof positive that the University of Konstanz excels at internationality.

Our internationality is also defined by the 1,200 international students at the University of Konstanz. Whether they study here through an exchange programme or intend to complete a degree, our university strives to ensure that all internationals feel that they are welcome and well supported. Our International Office is pleased to have received confirmation and positive feedback regarding our support and guidance for our international students via the International Student Barometer.

Internationality is also highlighted through our master's and doctoral programmes. The University of Konstanz offers a wide range of master's and double degree programmes through which students develop into highly qualified scholars and are encouraged to explore the cutting edge of international research.
Guest lecturers and visiting scholars from abroad are essential for the internationality of the University of Konstanz. To ensure optimal conditions for teaching, research and living at the university and the city, we have established a Welcome Center that provides individual support and guidance regarding all non-academic matters before, during and after the stay in Konstanz.
Worldwide partnerships and networks in research and teaching not only promote the interpersonal exchange of students and scholars, but they also advance new scientific insights through interdisciplinary synergies, perspectives, and transfers of knowledge and experience. We strive to strategically engage and coordinate our efforts with the University Executive, the faculties, as well as the individual scholars in order to continue to establish, develop, and support partnerships at the University of Konstanz. We are here for you!
Welcome to our International Office.
